ActiveRBAC?


#1

How’s the experience with using ActiveRBAC? For my “next 4 days with
rails” :stuck_out_tongue: I’d like to consider adding Role-based access to the To-Do
List application in the original “four days w/ rails” tutorial.

Just wondering if ActiveRBAC would be a good place to start? Thanks!

For those who are wondering: https://activerbac.turingstudio.com/trac

Cheers
Mohit.

If you are on windows it might be a problem. The actual release doesn’t
work for me as there are many issues with the rake migration and how
active_rbas handles files (my guess is that the files are hard coded for
unix systems in the confs).

For completness: The active_rbac team mentioned that the plugin is only
tested on unix systems so don’t hesitate. If your are on unix/linux/bsd
what ever, it might fit your needs as its very complete (in my point of
view).

Hi Daniel,

Thanks for the pointers. I’m on Windows most of the time, so perhaps I
should delay using ActiveRBAC… that, or I have to boot back to Linux
:slight_smile:

Any pointers on which other authentication engine is a good idea? I
know that there have been a few posts in the past few days relating to
this, so I’m going to go through those emails, too.

Cheers
Mohit.

I’ll be using ActiveRBAC in my current project. Am developing on Linux,
but
will be deploying on Windows Server 2003. I haven’t tried migrations on
Windows yet. But, ActiveRBAC has a schema.sql file for MS SQL Server
which
can be used instead of running the migrations. When I do the Windows
emplementation, I’ll try to remember :wink: to write a short tutorial on the
process.

In the mean time, if you needs don’t require the full RBAC treatment,
you
might consider the user_engine.

Thanks Larry - will check that out! Put me on the list of people
“waiting” for the tutorial. I guess my scenario may be the other way -
developing on Windows but deploying on Linux!
